Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure

I wonder if this had any bearing on the Judge's decision "Mr Hooke is a high-profile political lobbyist in Australia who was previously head of the Minerals Council of Australia."? As they say, there's no smoke without fire and I wonder what was said and done to cause Sam to react how he did and to say those things?

Must admit i read the detailed accounts of the accusations and it didnt make for a good read for Sam and in particular Luke who seemed to be a bit of a bad egg

Yep, I read something a while ago that said Luke seemed to be the instigator or at least fanning the flames of this. It's all a sorry state of affairs.

Sam Burgess arrested after allegedly failing roadside drug test

*Former NRL star taken to police station for further testing
*To face court for using an unregistered car with no licence


Former NRL star Sam Burgess is due to spend more time fronting a magistrate after allegedly committing driving offences. The 32-year-old was allegedly driving a BMW X5 when stopped on the Hume Highway south of Sydney on Monday.

“He was subjected to a random roadside drug test before being taken to Southern Highlands Police Station where he underwent a secondary oral fluid test,” police said in a statement, without naming Burgess. “The sample has been sent for further analysis.”

The man was told to attend court on charges of driving without a valid NSW licence and using an unregistered vehicle.

Numerous media outlets named the man as Burgess, who was earlier in February convicted of intimidating his former father-in-law.

The retired star was sentenced to a two-year community corrections order, requiring him to be of good behaviour. Burgess said afterwards that his legal team had appealed the conviction.

Burgess is due to face Moss Vale Local Court on the driving allegations on 4 May.

that takes a lot of courage.
